The Heist....

Taken  - Erin Bowman

In Claysoot, all boys vanish on their eighteenth birthday. The residents call it the heist. They have no idea why it happens or where all of the boys go. No one has ever even questioned it, until now, that is...


I really like this book. I knew when I read the preview that I had to read it & it was going to be good. Luckily, I was not disappointed. : ) From the very beginning, I grew attached to the characters and the alternate world the story is in. The world is really unique and different from anything I've read so far, which is one reason I like it so much. The author also does a great job of creating angst and building the tension leading up to the heists. You really sympathize with the boys that are scared to death to turn 18. I really can't say any more about the plot without giving it away. If it sounds intriguing to you though, then you should definitely read it. It's a great series!
